Thackeray: This is one biopic that was just waiting to be made. Bala Saheb Thackeray has always been regarded as the lion of Maharashtra - a larger than life personality. His political reach was unmatchable and his astute acumen was enviable. Journalist and MP Sanjay Raut is putting this life story of Mumbai's iconic leader into words. The film will be directed by Abhijit Panse and the main lead goes to Nawazuddin Siddiqui.
There is no doubt that Nawaz will do a great job, as he always does. But the success of this film will depend on how it is written and made. There is no doubt this film will see stupendous success in Mumbai and rest of Maharashtra - where Balasaheb was loved universally. The film showcasing Balasaheb's fight against injustice will be shot in Hindi and Marathi. It will also be dubbed in many other languages.
